"E74"error code is caused by a memory storage device attached to the Xbox 360 encountering a hardware error. You can try to remove the HDD and restart the console without it, if the E74 code won't appear it means that you need a HDD replacement. But if it still does appear, there is a general hardware failure in the system and it might require servicing. You can contact Microsoft Xbox Support for it to be fixed, out of warranty console will be charged $99 dollars by the way. The warranty period is three years.

Thank you !!

Xbox360 error74 what do i do ?

This is a fatal error on the board of the unit. This is caused by the unit overheating and causing solder on the board to melt and bridge(connect). Once this happens it shorts out the board causing the error you have now. Contact Microsoft and see if the unit is still under warranty.
